Lamium ambiguus / Manekigusa マネキグサ

 
The Japanese name, Manekigusa, for Lamium ambiguus, is derived from the flower's atmosphere, which may associate with hand gestures to invite someone in or lure. It is a perennial herb of 40-70cm in height. Leaves are of opposite phyllotaxis, in the shape of a 3-8cm-long orbicular-ovate with somewhat wrinkles on surfaces. Axils on the upper parts give birth to some dark red-purple labiate flowers. Bloom time: August-September.
